Background: The widespread use of web-based resources has dramatically increased access to scientifically based information. Access to large amounts of information places insurmountable demands on the readers to understand what is relevant and trustworthy. The Swedish research institute, Vårdal Institute took the initiative to set up a virtual room with the theme of cardiovascular care in Sweden, as part of a larger project encompassing nine virtual rooms with diverse health care themes. Methods: The aim of the project is to give an overview of the virtual thematic room and issues related to the dissemination of knowledge to patients, relatives, students and staff involved in cardiovascular care. Researchers and specialists in cardiology were invited to publish on the website in the space designated Thematic Room Heart. Results: Popular science articles are published in close cooperation between an editing committee and researchers. The virtual room presents reviews of recent research organized into the following themes: Coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, valve failure, heart failure, health economics, nutrition, physical activity, nutrition, geriatric and gender perspectives, and outpatient clinics run by nurses. In addition, the room contains news bulletin, information from patient organization and reference lists for text books, dissertations and guidelines. A syllabus and texts connected with each theme may be downloaded for use in local study circles. The idea is to stimulate the participants’ interest in learning in different contexts. The “current profile” and “good example” presentations are constantly updated. As this particular website is part of a larger virtual project, links and references to related issues such as “Living with chronic pain” and “Nutrition and eating” can easily be created. Conclusion: In conclusion, the virtual thematic room is a flexible, web-based anthology of interest and relevance to a wide range of readers interested in cardiovascular care.
